Judging Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation, new from Trafalgar Square Books

Horse Tack - Horse Books

Trafalgar Square Books is pleased to announce the publication of the new edition of Judging Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation by Anna Jane White-Mullin. Whether eyeing the perfect distance from the saddle or the judge’s box, this book—the only book on how to judge hunt-seat show classes—is your key to success. Experienced instructor and United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) registered judge Anna Jane White-Mullin provides the definitive resource for aspiring judges and competitors, with more than 100 photographs of correct and incorrect positions of horses and riders; explanations of how to develop an eye for conformation classes and score hunters and equitation riders on the flat and over fences; and a complete discussion of 2006 USEF rules and tests.

Along with her own valuable insight, White-Mullin discusses: hunter structural composition and weighing defects vs. blemishes; common horse locomotion and form faults under saddle and over fences; rider position both in the approach and in the air in equitation classes; and the “Judge’s Card,” including scoring, terminology, abbreviations, symbols, and comments.

“[This book] is a valuable tool in the development of young horsemen today. The sport owes a great deal to Anna Jane for her contribution to our knowledge and understanding.” —Frank I. Madden

“This is one of the very best books available for both judges and students of hunter/jumper equitation and showing…superbly illustrated and easily understood.” —The American Quarter Horse Journal (for the previous edition)

ANNA JANE WHITE-MULLIN serves as a judge, clinician, and lecturer throughout the North and South American continents. White-Mullin is also the author of Winning: A Training and Showing Guide for Hunter Seat Riders. She lives on a farm in Gadsden, Alabama.
